Dear Fellow Music Lovers,

We have all been in a concert or performance situation when a mobile phone decides to alert its owner of the incoming call or message.  I fully realise that some calls are of the utmost importance and cannot be missed.  However, why individuals choose not to silence their communication devices remains a mystery for performers and other audience members alike.  So, when attending a concert, knowing full well that the presence of silence is just as important as the punctuation of sound…..please turn off the phone!  I saw this video this morning and felt it deserved a share!
